Leticia Canales is an adventurous and promising surfer, a Sopelana local, born in Bilbao. She recently put her University studies on hold to focus purely on surfing. We thank her for it as we give her a warm Volcom to the team!
Her 2013 season was excellent, getting 2nd place at the ASP Pro Junior Tour and 9th place in the ASP World Junior Championships in Brazil. She furthermore claimed the Spanish National Absolut Champion title the same year and it doesn't stop there as she also won the Euskal Monster in MUNDAKA Surf with a perfect 10 pointer from an insane tube ride.
Leticia stared surfing together with her twin Loiola as a child of 6 summers old. At 14 she started competing in the European Championships and World Championships with her national team. At present she's participating in the ASP PRO European Junior Series, ASP WAS European series, ISA World and European Championships, the Spanish Cup and Basque contests.
Keep an eye out for her - more news and full interview to come!
